    I was wondering what handgun you all think is the most underrated? I picked up a used Bersa Thunder UC 45 a couple weeks ago and for the price I think these little guns could be the most underrated on the market. The double action trigger is smooth and its more accurate than I am.
    After buying this one and shooting a Thunder 380, my vote for most underrated would have to go to Bersa. What's your pick??

    After nearly 45 years of shooting I discovered the fun of a .45 colt peacemaker (modern clone of one) a little over a year ago. I reload for it, and that means it will go from powder puff to nearly .44 magnum power and anywhere in between. As a pistol, the peacemaker shoots the truest natural point of aim there is.

    I agree with you on the Bersa and would like to give the 3rd gen smiths a honorable mention

    Bersa and Kel-Tec were always told to me to be junk. I have owned a Bersa and still own a Kel-Tec P40 which is in my truck with me everyday. That gun has never failed me at the range. I just hope it holds up to its reliability if god forbid I ever need it for PP.

    Why people would call bersa junk is beyond me. I will agree they are not the top of the line, but they are a decent and dependable gun for the money in my opinion.

    Not to take anything away from the Bersa, which appears to me to be a pretty decent firearms, my nomination for most underated handgun would have to be Hi Point.

    I like and have a Bersa but for the money and cost effectiveness of operation the Tok 762x25's are hard to beat

    The CZ guns IMO are underrated.

    The Stoeger Cougar 8045F .45acp is a lot of gun for the money.

    I really like the feel of the Bersa thunder 380 and might even pick one up if the deal is right when I have a little extra cash.

    I have the Couger 8000 with only one failure to feed with 400 rds. through it so far. It seems to be a pretty solid gun so far and I only paid 399.00 for it brand new.

    I would vote bersa followed by keltec as a runner up.
